PlayStation Plus: Your October Content
With Autumn well and truly upon us, what better way to shrug off the gathering gloom than by looking forward to a great month of PlayStation Plus content? And, I hope you agree, it is indeed something of a whopper, with two massive blockbuster games coming to your Instant Game Collection, along with a weird and wonderful PSN platformer from Sega.
First things first, as of tomorrow Plus members get free access to Hell Yeah! Wrath of Dead Rabbit. As should be made evident by the trailer below, it’s an absolutely insane side-scroller that sees you step into the shoes of a demonic rabbit hell-bent on vengeance after pictures of him in the shower make it onto the internet. It’s been picking up some great reviews – make sure you check it out.
Next up, on 10th October, you can get your hands on EA‘s lunatic shooter Bulletstorm. Released to widespread acclaim last year, it’s a larger-than-life space shooter with a hugely addictive combat system that lets you customise your kills. Oh, and it’s also ruder than a Gordon Ramsay vs. Ray Winstone swear-off. You have been warned.
Also on 10th October, you can grab yourself Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition. That’s Capcom’s massive 2009 zombie shooter, with all post-launch DLC and Move support. Can’t say fairer than that. Get it downloaded, then compare and contrast with Resi 6, which launches on PlayStation 3 today.
In addition to all this, we’ll also be bringing you a range of additional deals, themes and avatars as the month progresses. For more details on those, please keep an eye on our weekly Store update posts, but here are a few to get you started:
- 3rd October: Spelunker HD – 50% off the full game and 50% off various DLC packs for two weeks
- 10th October: Derrick the Deathfin – 30% off
- 17th October: Dogfight 1942 – 50% off a bundle including the full game and two DLC packs
- 24th October: Hell Yeah! Wrath of Dead Rabbit – 20% off DLC packs
Finally, here’s a recap of which games will be removed from your Instant Game Collection this month:
- 3rd October: Red Dead Redemption
- 10th October: Lara Croft & The Guardian of Light
- 10th October: Saints Row 2
See you back here next month – we’ve got some great content lined up already, with the service due to expand onto PS Vita.
